Prospective thieves were no match for reinforced glass at a Dunedin jeweller this morning.
Sr Sgt Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said the window of Goldsmiths in St Andrews St was broken about 12.45am today.
Store co-owner John McCallum said the glass-breaking was just an "attempt".
"They were able to poke a few holes through, but it's all reinforced."
While there were decorations in the window, anything of worth was put in a safe overnight, he said.
A repair company was able to fix the window at 3am.
Sr Sgt Craig Dinnissen urged anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around early this morning contact police.
